8:48 am
moment. that is an indication of that. for me chief bratten is as experienced chief and police officer. he is a no nonsense guy. he get to the point and we have to let him develop what he would recommend as the best strategic plan for oakland to could to deal with safety. >> that is probably the lightening rod of the controversy. his plan includes the stop and frisk policy. some police departments are doing that and a lot of people are saying it is subject to racism. you support it? >> i support it. i hear the mayor's comments. talk a lot, but when action has to be taken, they disappear. for me, i need to give every tool to my police officers to do their jobs. the voters in my district made it very clear, even as of last week, noel, your number one seizure is stay focused with public safety.

ability to stop and frisk a suspect because you believe the person may be up to something. >> yes. and some of that is going on. we call it targeted enforcement. that is what they talk about. the highway patrol has no problem doing that -- . >> you have to be pulled over initially for something. >> the problem is 23 oakland does it, they get upset so they bring in other agency to do it for them. >> you have to deal with the realities of your neighborhood, right? sometimes the only thing we understand is force. i grew up in that neighborhood and that is safe. my propers and sisters are doing things -- brothers and sisters are doing things, locked up in other places. the reality is i will keep breaking into your home until you push back. that is only thing some of us understand and that is happening in oakland. >> what do you do with the political balancing of it?
8:51 am
whether stop and frisk is profiling or not, it is perceived of it. and if it is going on in oakland and other city, they will tell mayor bratten we will listen to you but not that part if you say it. >> look. the majority of oakland wants to be serious about crime. you have certain individuals at the leadership level that will use race as an excuse, how poor i am as a excuse, use what neighborhoods are as a excuse. but the reality is the common citizen of oakland is tired of being locked up behind their own homes. >> yes. there are a couple other new council people so we will see if they have any affect in changing the culture politically and safety-wise in oakland. a lot of concerns. >> it is a big debate. the next vote is tuesday night. all sides say they will show up and show up in force. it out to be having
